2021 B.O.D Nominees

2021 B.O.D Nominee bios:

This year our board has two vacancies, and one incumbent Director seeking re-election.

Director seeking re-election:

Riel Moar

I joined the Peg City Car Co-op board in Spring 2019 and am currently the Treasurer. I am a CPA and have worked as an internal auditor at IG Wealth Management for the past 7 years. I originally joined the PCCC board because I connected with the organization’s purpose and felt I could contribute with my accounting experience. I have enjoyed learning more about the organization and industry and am excited to get the opportunity to continue in my current role.

Nominees seeking election: 

Natalie Copps

As a long time member of Peg City Car Co-op, and a big believer in carsharing I would love to become a part of the Board. I’m a soon to be lawyer, as of June, and would love to put my legal and organizational development skills to use for Peg City! As a Métis woman, I’d also love to bring that perspective to the Board and the work Peg City does in the community. I’d particularly be interested in serving on the governance committee.

I’m currently an articling student at TDS Law, and will officially become a lawyer on June 24th. Before articling, I clerked for Justice Dawson at the Federal Court of Appeal in Ottawa. I have a law degree, a Masters in Conflict Studies and Comparative Politics and a B.A.(Hons) in Political Science and Art History. In my past life, I was also a political staffer for the former NDP government. Outside of work, I served on the Board of Directors for Rainbow Trout Music Festival for three years as Volunteer Director where I oversaw roughly 125 volunteers who made our festival run! RTMF is a working board so I was involved with a wide variety of organizational decisions. I was also involved in several student organizations while completing my law degree. I’ve also volunteered on a variety of political campaigns for every level of government.

When I’m not running myself ragged with work and volunteering, I love gardening, beadwork, bike riding, curling, reading, and being social (though the pandemic has put a big damper on that).

Elizabeth Kessler

I love Peg City and I have a passion for living a car-light lifestyle. I have experience with governance in a membership-based organization and I’ve been looking for more opportunities to be involved in the community. I know that the work of an organization’s board is integral to the functioning of an organization as a whole, and I think my organizational skills and experience in the nonprofit world would be an asset.

I’m a professional fundraiser with six years of experience. I currently work for a large nonprofit where I’m responsible for managing donor relationships and a implementing a multi-faceted fundraising strategy. Prior to getting into fundraising I worked as a community organizer and served on the board of a large student union in Ontario for two terms. I currently volunteer with Rainbow Harmony Project — Winnipeg’s LGBTQ community choir — and with a small community church where I’m a member. In the past I’ve also volunteered with the Manitoba Energy Justice Coalition and Climate Justice Ottawa.

I’m originally from Vancouver and settled in Winnipeg seven years ago after a brief stint in Ontario. I have a degree in political science, and my interests include canoeing, hiking, cycling, sewing, gardening and amateur music. I also have a passion for accessibility for people with learning disabilities and have conducted workshops on accessibility in community organizing. As a longtime public transit enthusiast, I got my driver’s license at the age of 27 after realizing it would be necessary if I wanted to go solo camping. My favourite car in the Peg City fleet is the green Kia Soul. I live in Osborne village with my partner, a small black cat, and seven bicycles.

Thanks for reading, see you at the AGM!

Only share-holding members are eligible to sit on the board.  Nominations have closed as of May 3, 2021.

*SOLD OUT* Invest in Less with Peg City Car Co-op Investment Shares


To our valued members and supporters: Investment Shares are sold out.

We’re excited to announce that we are now SOLD OUT of all $600,000 in Investment Shares!

Thank you to our valued investors for making this sale a huge success. Your investment means we can continue to grow and diversify our fleet by adding more vehicle options – like spacious cargo vans! Our investment drive in 2019 allowed us to grow our fleet from 40 to 60 vehicles in 2020!

Your continued support in Peg City Car Co-op allowed us to grow from a carshare with 3 cars operating in 1 neighbourhood to 60 vehicles in 11 neighbourhoods. Your investment will help us bring carsharing to even more people. Our goal is to reach nearly 100 cars by 2023. That means more people will be walking, biking and busing for most of their transportation needs, reducing congestion and pollution in Winnipeg.

Where to go: Stay home edition


With few places to go as Manitoba shifts into code red, the Peg City crew brings you the staying home edition of our travel blog. We’ve all pitched in to showcase a little glimpse of something fun we are doing while we #stayhome and weather this storm. Enjoy!

As the folks behind curtain, we spend most of our waking hours obsessing over our fleet and ensuring that our members get to where they need to go. Typically the Where to go: blog would showcase the stories of our members (and staff) using our cars to travel around Manitoba, and beyond! But just as we were preparing our latest feature, cases started to climb in a big way. With the recent move to code red and people hunkering down we decided to look inward with our latest Where to go: stay home edition. Read on to learn about how the Peg City Car Co-op team is coping through our second lockdown! 

Will Belford: Fleet Manager

Doing the crossword.
Doing the crossword. Also featured: Lockdown hair.

We started getting the Saturday newspaper again. It’s nice to read something that isn’t on a screen. Especially when it’s local news. I recommend using a nice smooth pen to fill in the crossword. I also suggest cheating as much as you need to. The satisfaction of a filled puzzle is barely diminished by googling obscure clues! There is a crossword language, you’ll need a little help to decipher it. 

We’ve also gathered a few new plant buddies. We’ve bought a couple, but we’ve also had some clippings shared by friends. Some plants are very hearty and can withstand lopping off a branch to make a little friend, but none are more prolific than the spider plant! The spider-lings can be planted directly in soil. If you have any spare shot glasses left over from your mixology degree, pop them in and watch as the roots begin to grow! It can be a lovely daily meditation to visit and inspect while you preen over the rest of your flora.

And I’ve finally had the opportunity to make soap! We already had most of the equipment needed – another offshoot of having time to organize the basement a bit- and yes, I already had the lab coat. After watching videos and finding recipes online, all that was left was to make the mold and mix up a batch. Olive oil is a great starter oil, because you can make a nice soap with only one ingredient. We opted to add some coconut oil, Vitamin E, and Bentonite clay. Scented it with peppermint essential oil, and some dried mint from this year’s garden. We have so much soap now! I’ve been giving it away at every opportunity. I can see this being a lifelong hobby.

Michelle Panting: Fleet Assistant

Michelle, fleet assistan

Hi, I’m Michelle, Peg City’s Fleet Assistant. I’ve been spending many cozy hours over the stove since the lockdown began. As one of my pandemic projects, I’ve been trying my hand at more vegan recipes. Sometimes I’ll invent vegan interpretations of traditional recipes. Last week I made a Bolognese sauce swapping out the butter and meat for vegan butter, red lentils, and jack fruit. This dish produces the deep, rich flavours my body’s been craving as the cold descends. The key to getting the flavours right is to leisurely assemble the ingredients over medium heat in a cast-iron skillet, then reduce over a long, low simmer, stirring occasionally. 

Bolognese, vegan recipe

Colby Deighton: Member Services Coordinator

I’m Colby, Member Services Coordinator for Peg City. Recently, my partner and I have revamped our COVID-EOs music videos! We us our weekends to make dorky musical mashups! This project started during the OG lockdown in March. It began with us singing songs on our couch for our families, who we couldn’t gather with over Easter and Mothers Day. We took the summer off to have socially distant friend hangs and meet my 8-month-old niece, while numbers were low (she was born days after the first lockdown began!). Alas, here we are again.

This project is an extension of our ever-expanding musical curiosity. We started with just us signing and an acoustic guitar. In our latest piece, we’ve expanded to include drums, bass, electric guitar, dual clarinets, tambourine and some snappy harmonies. The songs featured are covers, but all the music and video are recorded and edited by the two of us! 

Enjoy! (Happy Birthday Greg.)

Philip Mikulec: Managing Director

Phil walking his dog.

Hello! I’m Philip, Peg City Car Co-op’s Managing Director, and fearless leader. When we first went into lockdown in March, I thought to myself, no problem I got this. As a card-carrying member of the I Don’t Need Anybody, Introverts Club, I figured I’d weather COVID with ease. To my surprise, cabin fever set in faster than COVID dies on a surface! I soon realized I’m going to need more than my introvert strengths to make it through. Learning from my hubris from round one, I’m more prepared than ever to deal with COVID round two! Out of the frying pan and into the fire, here we go! 

One of the things I started to miss quickly during round one of lockdown was my commute to the office! It was nice to get out of the house, but as an all-year-round cyclist, it was also a great way to get exercise daily. With no more biking to and from the office, I needed to find new ways to move around. Lucky for me, I’ve got a 9-year old dog who’s as fit as a fiddle, and always raring to go (usually she’s carrying me)! I now tag along with my partner to get some much needed fresh air and exercise. 

My partner and I have also taken to eating way more home-cooked meals. One of my most recent favourites is baking focaccia bread. Once baked, I cut the focaccia in half, cover it in garden-fresh pizza sauce, top it with a mound of mozzarella cheese, and then bake it a second time!

To cap off the night, I will usually cover myself in all the blankets we own, surround myself in candles, and read a book for at least an hour. It’s too easy to sink into a rhythm of binge-watching reality tv all night, but a steady diet of tv junk food can only get you so far! 

Stay home, Stay Safe, Stay sane.

Thanks for reading folks! Feel free to share your lockdown self-care project with us on Facebook and Instagram using #pegcitycarcoop!


Re:Member – Cancellations


Our members can book online anytime and choose from a diverse fleet of vehicles parked throughout the city. Need to modify or cancel a booking? Here’s how.

We all do our best to plan ahead, but folks may need to cancel a booking every now and then. Our members can cancel a booking anytime by logging in and selecting the booking in question. Cancelling on the go? Give us a call at 204-793-3912. We have staff on-call from 7 am to midnight.

Fall, PCCC car and member removing bicycle

It’s best to cancel as soon as possible so that other members can use the vehicle. As soon as you cancel a booking, the car becomes available to other members on our website. If another member books over a portion of your cancelled time, the fees for that time are waived!

Cancellation Rates

Here is a visual list of our cancellation rates for some of our most common scenarios.

cancelling with over 12 hours notice

Members can cancel any booking for free when they give at least 12 hours’ notice. Thanks for planning ahead!

Less than 12 hours notice

We understand, things come up and appointments get cancelled. Suddenly you don’t need a car anymore. However, the vehicle may not get used at all due to the short notice, as other members may have made alternate arrangements. When you cancel a booking within less than 12 hours’ notice, we charge 50% of the hourly booking fees. Remember, if someone else books into your cancelled time, we will remove the cancellation fees.

early return

If you finish your trip early, you are welcome to return the car and cancel the remaining portion of your booking. When you return a car early, you will be charged 100% for the portion of the time you used and 50% for the time you freed up. As soon as you click “I’m done with this car” in our booking software, the car immediately becomes available to other members. If someone else books your unused time, we will remove the cancellation fees.

No show

A No Show is a no-no in our books. Please remember that we have nearly 90 cars serving around 2,600 members. If you make a booking and forget to use or cancel it, you impact other members and the Co-op as a whole.

Please be mindful of your bookings and cancel them if your plans change so that other members may use the vehicle. If you do not show up and do not cancel a booking, we apply a rate of 150% of the hourly booking charges.

Other types of cancellations

Switched cars: Each booking you make is for a specific car. You have to cancel one to book another.

Booked by accident: “Oops! I didn’t mean to book that!” Don’t worry; you can cancel any booking for free within 15 minutes of making it.

Still have questions?
